I'm not much of a beetle person, but how can you not love darklings? :P

Apparently they're trying it "cockroach style." :P

I've been selectively breeding these for size the last few years.

The best part of keeping beetles... Larvae! :)

I have 22 Z. morio "superworms" right now that I bought at petsmart. I am not really going to use them for feeders, I just wanted more beetles and figured I should be able to get the whole life cycle from them. My mom watches my cousin (shes 3 years old or something) and they are wanting her to see animals and stuff early on.

 

Large selection of darklings you have there :D Are all the Eleodes species long lived?

Some websites I have been on say that Eleode species live 3-15 years. I am planning on having mine for quite a while.

 

I kind of wish the Z. morio lived long :rolleyes: don't they only live a couple months at the most as adults?

 

Thanks, and hope they all do well for you :)
